Gardens by the Bay is set to host a Sakura Matsuri (which means cherry blossom festival in Japanese) event this March but is keeping mum about the details.

Except for a few things… 

A quick look at their Calendar of Events describes a display of Japan’s cherry blossoms which could be held in the Flower Dome similar to past years.

What’s more, an anime-filled weekend is scheduled to be held on 17 & 18 March, transforming the Supertree Gove into an Anime Garden featuring themed activities including Anisong concerts, celebrity cosplayer appearances and a Pikachu Parade!
